HULK HOGAN VS. THE YETI, WRESTLING GIMMICKS, ETC

Wrestling mayhem:



"Warm up the bed-pan - Hogan's going to the hospital!"

Then - not sure why - but someone made a mash-up loop of The Yeti. Perhaps they were on drugs lol. It's strangely compelling and ever-so-slightly hallucinatory:



This is fantastic, tho: Ten Wrestling Gimmicks - and yes, The Yeti makes another appearance! - but man of the match must be Phantasio! I want to be Phantasio!



This is like some sort of mental fucked-up sit-com (keep watching; it gets stranger!) - my kinda TV; the swirly lo-res compressed footage only adds to the strangeness; it's like their faces have been censored:



"Until then: a-hahahahaha-ha!"

Isn't there a famous theorist who wrote an academic article about wrestling? I think it was Barthes or someone of that sort.

Whenever people tell me pro wrestling is fake i tell 'em no, that really is what America is like.

word verification: unnium! i'm totally using that! "I can't defeat the Taupe Menace, I'm all out of Unnium!"

Dan: it was almost certainly Zizek lol. It sounds like his territory. I must Google on that later.

Darren: I often like to sit back and imagine that America is exactly like that last video clip lol.

Sadly, tho, the last time I set foot on American soil - 11 years ago! in pre-9/11 JFK and Seattle airports, en route to Vancover - it neither confirmed nor denied that possibility. So, I am left with only my puerile fantasies.
